The OIV weighs in on the global wine production trends over the past three years. Are three years worth of data significant enough to find a nexus to clmate change?
“Is it an effect of global warming, the big swings in wine production on 2017, 2018 and 2019”, someone in the audience asked. “No,” was the answer from Pau Roca, director-general of the International Organisation of Vine and Wine (OIV). But more important was what he followed up with. “It is too short a time span to be able to draw any such conclusion.
Pau Roca was presenting the very first estimations of the global wine production in 2019 at the new OIV headquarters in Paris.
So, back to the global wine production 2019.
Worldwide wine production in 2019 is back to long term average
The world’s total wine production in 2019 is estimated to be 263 million hectolitres (26.3 billion litres, within a span of 258 to 267 Mhl). This is just slightly below the average global wine production over the last ten years of 270 Mhl.
However, it is a drop of 10% compared to the previous year, but 2018 saw a very big wine production of 294 M hl. 2018 was almost a record size harvest.
Compared to 2017, two years ago, 2019 is an increase with 6%, but 2017 was the smallest harvest in a long time.
